    We have dozens of Americans being held captive in the middle east. A diplomatic response to this situation may very well save them from torture or worse.

    It is time to bring our men and women home. This incident just shows that our efforts are mostly a waste of time. We smashed the terrorists, ran the taliban into the hills. We can't change thousands of years of beliefs in a decade or two.

    BRING THEM HOME. RESCUE THOSE BEING HELD CAPTIVE.

    The partisanship is strong on this topic.

    I kinda feel sorry for you Gramps. You say some things that are very sensible and logical and you seem to have a very real sense of fairness.

    Must make it very hard to blindly hate President Obama and damn near impossible to for you vote R.

    obama is either going to turn the koran burners over to the taliban or court martial them for koran abuse in our own military tribunals.

    Either way, this isn't going to end well for obama.

    The only reason you're saying that is because on this issue you agree. It is telling however that you STILL found a way to make it appear partisan.

    And if that happens the outrage will be justified. Until then however let's just assume that he is thinking about those in harms way, both willingly and those being held against their will.

    Ayup.

    Throughout the whole of human history, everyone has known that getting involved in the Mideast never turns out well. To hell with all of them. Start drilling here, cut off military aid of any kind to all parties involved, and let them get back to living in mud huts and killing each other.

    They have more oil than we do. No matter HOW much you drill domestically, they will ALWAYS have more and be able to sell it for less. That' just the numbers.

    If you want to make them IRRELEVANT...switch to solar, wind and geothermal and dump money in researching FUSION power. Staying addicted to oil isn't any sort of plan for anything other than more of the same.

    It could get interesting. The prisoners desecrated the Korans first.

    By law in Afghanistan the prisoners should be put to death. What I don't get is the President making such a big hullabaloo with his apologies over the burning of the already desecrated Korans.

    I thought that was the only way one could destroy a desecrated Koran.

    And the press seems to be seriously ignoring the fact that the Korans were first desecrated by the prisoners by writing in the holy book.

    Someone said Fox is covering it. But I'm not hearing much about this angle on my radio stations.
